Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders Preview


The Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders are set to clash heads on Friday when they battle it out at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

The Indians couldn’t get a win against the Super Kings in their first match back to restart their campaign, losing by 20 runs. Their first loss in three matches has left their top-four spot in jeopardy.

Mahela Jayawardene’s side is set to regain two crucial players who missed out on the loss against the Super Kings. Both Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya are expected to be available for selection.

Meanwhile, the Knight Riders won their first match back against the Royal Challengers comfortably with 10 overs to spare. The bowling attack was formidable keeping the Challengers to a total of 92. Andre Russell and Varun Chakravarthy starred with the ball taking three wickets each.

Although they are in good form of recent, history isn’t on their side. The Mumbai Indians have dominated recent meetings, winning 12 of the previous 13 encounters. A streak they will have to end on Friday to leapfrog Mumbai into a top-four spot.

It is set to be another thriller between these two clubs, but I believe considering the history between these two, it will be the Mumbai Indians who prevail on Friday.
